Heidi Montag’s Plastic Surgeon Dies in a Car Crash

Heidi Montag has been in the media spotlight in the past few months for her plastic surgery “addiction” and slew of cosmetic procedures that have completely transformed here appreance. The reality star’s plastic surgeon was recently killed in a car accident after becoming trapped in a vehicle and suffering major head injuries. His Jeep veered off the Pacific Coast Highway and the Ventura County Fire Department attempted to pull him out of the car using a helicopter, but had to call it off. Dr. Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to entertainment website TMZ.com, Dr. Frank Ryan performed a total of ten cosmetic procedures in one day on Heidi Montag. Newsweek reports that Heidi Montag has undergone a nose job, breast implants, collagen lip injections and several other procedures before she turned 21. Heidi told People Magazine that she is completely obsessed with plastic surgery and has no problems going under the knife again.

Here procedures cost over $30,000, and she reportedly spent ten hours in the operating room. Statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show that cosmetic surgery procedures performed on teens have nearly doubled in the past decade. Teens under the age of 18 do need parental consent to undergo Botox injections, breast implants, liposuction and other types of procedures – and many do. While Heidi has worked hard to conform to a male standard of beauty and hopes that her new looks will help her career, many plastic and cosmetic surgeons warn against following in the heels of their favorite celeb just to improve their lives.

All board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons are required to do complete a face-to-face consultation with their patients and find out if the patient is mentally healthy. Those that show any signs of obsession or have very low self-esteem may be referred to a psychiatrist.
